HIV Generation Tests

Hi all,

Was just wondering if anyone knows what generation tests that Labcorp or Quest diagnostics use for their HIV Elisa test.

Are these tests any different to the ones used in NY state becuase NY state seems to use tests that can detect HIV antibodies in most people by 4 weeks?

I know it is said that after 6 weeks all Elisa tests will be equal, maybe off by day or 2 from then on.
